The Chazen Case Series

Founded in 1992, Computer Warehouse Group had grown into one of the largest technology service providers in Nigeria. After more than 20 years as CEO, Founder Austin Okere was now considering stepping down as CEO. With a new business model now in place, Okere wondered if someone with a more technical background might be a better fit to lead the company going forward. This case asks students to consider what actions were in the best interest of the firm—and, were Okere to step down, how to design a successful succession plan.
